RVs and Digital TV
We have been receiving a lot of e-mail with questions about TVs
in RVs, trailers, motorhomes and boats that won't work after
Transition on February 17, 2009.
We have a new page with information about RVs
and Digital TV . There is a company called RVDigitalTV.com
that can upgrade your RV's built-in Analog TV set to a
Widescreen LCD flat panel TV so you will be able to continue to receive
free over the air television next year.
We also have an RVs
and Converter Box
page with instructions for connecting a 12-volt converter box in your
RV or boat with a 12-volt power system if you want to
analog TV set and use a converter
box. Our information was referenced by KEYE TV 42
out of Austin, TX in their story Digital

converter box for this type of connection, please check our Converter
